  • Busting the Four Myths About Dermal Fillers

    While most of the world is relatively free from traveling snake-oil salesmen tactics, that doesn’t mean the fear-mongering, telling of tales and telephone game misinformation left the building with them. No sir, those myths still abound. So let’s bust ‘em, shall we? 

  • A Look at How Dermal Fillers Work and What’s in Them

    From the silicone injections popularized in the 40’s and 50’s, to the animal collagen derivative fillers of the 70’s (Zyderm, Zyplast), to the modern hyaluronic acid fillers used today, dermal fillers have come a long way from the humble fat-injecting beginnings of Dr. Gustav Adolf Neuber, also a big proponent of complete cleanliness in surgical rooms. Thanks! 

  • Five Tips for Making Your Facelift Last

    Let’s just say you went ahead and did it. In a fit of officially being “over it,” you bid adieu to droopy jowls, a saggy brow and any number of the effects of aging that, as time marched on, became immune to temporary fillers and skin rejuvenating procedures. You went and got a face lift and, fortunately, you’re thrilled with the results. But before you throw in the towel when it comes to healthy living, SPF and skincare, you should know that a facelift doesn’t “stop the clock” on the effects of aging. 

  • Buyer Beware: Dying for a bigger butt

    From the Kardashian clan to Nicki Minaj, the junk in your trunk is a big (#bunpun) business. So big, in fact, that the merits of a big beautiful booty has inspired hit songs like “Bootylicious” and “Baby Got Back,” #belfies (butt selfies), dance trends (hello, twerking), and a current standard of beauty more accepting of a woman’s curves. 

  • Keep Your Chin Up! Let’s Talk About Chin Augmentation

    With famous phrases like, “The eyes are the window to the soul,” and the ability of a pillowy set of lips to become a cultural phenomenon (we’re talking to you, Angelina Jolie) — there is no shortage of evidence pointing to the importance we place on prominent facial features. And while we often focus on the peepers and the puckers — what about the rest? 

  • Stop Feeling Bad About Your Neck!

    The late queen of keepin’ it real, Nora Ephron wasn’t alone when she titled her 2006 best-seller, “I Feel Bad About My Neck.” In fact, as we age it’s a strong bet that many of us will start to feel “bad” about our necks — and for good reason. A once swanlike neck that starts to accumulate fat, wrinkles and vertical banding as we grow older is hardly the stuff of dreams. And when that tight as a baby’s bottom jawline starts to display jowls, a double chin, and/or a “turkey wattle” you’ll need that neck scarf to wipe away the tears.  

  • Cellulite: Can You Really Banish the Bumps?

    Dimply, dumpy and bumpy - cellulite is likely the one summer accessory you wish you could just take off already. Since it’s scientifically impossible to wish cellulite away or scrub it off in the shower — damn you and your pesky logic, science! — we’re going to take a look at some of the things you can do to help rid yourself of this bikini season pariah.  

  • Body contouring treatments: Friend or foe?

    The health and beauty market never seems short of get fit quick treatments, procedures and gadgets, and at no time during the year are we ever more hopeful that they’ll work than now — bikini season.  

    From rapid weight loss pills to cellulite removing treatments, there’s always a new “next big thing” gunning for your hard earned dollars. And more often than not, those same “miracle” treatments lead consumers down the too-short emotional trail from “hallelujah” to “I’ve been had.”  

  • A fast track to summer skin care

    You have hydrated and exfoliated your way through winter and are currently smoothing and serum-ing your way through spring, so let’s stick with this seasonal approach to skincare by tackling the calendar’s next-at-bat: summer. 

  • New products and procedures with big promise

    Has that sweet bird of youth finally flown the coop? Not to worry. A new breed of products and procedures is finally here and promising to bring that beautiful birdie back to his perch. Gone are yesterday’s slow, overly pulled and puffed results, in lieu of instant (or nearly), natural looking beauty breakthroughs offering solutions to the fine lines, wrinkles and discolorations of an aging complexion.
